So, I am back and despite being in rather a lot of pain from slipping over when completely sober, I am feeling pretty rested after my hols.

France was amazing, we were staying at Naomi's family home in the hills of the village of Valbonne and while the weather was not perfect (three days of sun and four days of rain, roughly) the holiday itself was.

We managed a lot in a week, museums, markets and lots of reading and eating, the rainy days being a perfect excuse to do nothing.  I do love doing nothing, it is one of my specialist skills.

I won't bore you with long descriptions of what we got up to as the fabulous Miss Jeni wrote a great summary of our activities on her marvellous blog and it is much better than anything I could put together.  Instead here are some pictures.  Yes, I am one of those people who likes to show others her holiday snaps.  :-P

 my leopard print suitcase ROCKS!

 Our first amble into the village

 Beautiful market stalls

 Gale force winds in Cannes

 The view from the top of the hill in Cannes

 The museum where we took shelter from the gale

 Monacos and Nutella

 I wasn't the only one who fell over!

 I love this pic of the back of the girls hair and their Heyday! Fleur dresses

 A Wendy house, what larks!

 The vintage paparazzi were out in force


The graveyard was very beautiful

It is impossible to look serious in a cherry jumpsuit...

A pretty little violet.

Well, that is it peops, hope you enjoyed the show. 


  1. Seems like you had an amazing vacation! Loved the pics!

  2. Looks like a lovely time, what great photos. :)

  3. What a wonderful holiday.

    I love the shots of the market!

    I also LOVE that suitcase. I often moan about how vintage luggage isn't practical, and modern luggage looks quite ugly...where did you get that case? It looks roomy, wheely and pretty (my 3 'musts').

  4. Oh, it looked like you guys had so much fun! :)
